"My wife and I spent three nights at the Bush House and were thoroughly impressed. The staff is incredibly helpful and professional and the owners are warm and committed to their work. Madikwe is a great reserve and you are nearly guaranteed great spottings. However, there are other lodges on the reserve where you can easily pay double or triple the rate for "5-star" experience, which probably amounts to slightly more luxury pampering. The reality is that you will want to spend the majority of your time on the game drives or relaxing on the Bush House's lush lawn, its nice pool, or in its truly unique "Hide," all of which provide amazing views of the watering hole used by all sorts of game. At one point, we saw 35+ elephants watering and playing. During our six drives, we saw: cheetahs, lions, water buffalo herds, giraffes, white rhinos, elephants, zebras, oryx, and many other types of smaller game and antelope species, not to mention many birds. Do yourself a favor and book the Bush House!"

"We had a wonderful time with Zeide and his team at Motswiri. This is a small family ran operation. The hotel itself is nice with large rooms with good views of the Savannah - our room looked to the watering hole which meant we could see all kinds of animals from bed. The highlight though is Zeide - having been at Madikwe for 17 years or so, he knows the animals by name (no joke! he definitely knows all the lions...) and has encyclopedic knowledge of everything you see. The game rides were certainly the highlight of our vacation!"

"Absolutely fantastic stay at the Rhulani Safari Lodge! Staff are super friendly and cannot do enough for you. They have thought of all the little details to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay. Rooms were great, with a log fire and a heated pool which we were able to use during the day and evening. Dinner was delicious beside an open fire with singing from the staff. The game drives were also brilliant as the rangers are able to go "offroad" to get great views/experiences with the animals (without disturbing them). Would definitely recommend!"
